    I was using Dodo Juice Purple Haze as a wax but i've just taken delivery of some Natty paste. Both are good on dark cars. Can't beat good prep work to really make it pop though (clay, polish, prime)

    If your thinking of what would be best for your car ? which from your avatar is silver you'd do well using a sealant rather than a wax.

    Take a look through teh detailing section of this forum, you will come across many pictures supporting product reviews/experiences.

    As a general answer to your question, I'd say something like Collinite Double Coat is a good option for a quality finish and longevity.

    I do also personally use a number of waxes such as Chemical Guys, Bilt Hamber, AutoGlym HD and Turtlewax Professional, all sat on a shelf in the store room.

    I'd agree with collinite 476. Theres quite a few depending on what kind of look/protection you want.

    As your car is silver, Collinite 476s would indeed be an excellent choice for looks and durability. If you wanted to use a Dodo Juice Wax, Light Fantasic or Diamond White would both be excellent - i like the softer waxes, so i use LF.

    Poorboy's Natty's Original is intended for use on light coloured cars and is excellent value for money - the other option is Natty's Blue. Although intended for use on dark colours, it's extra oils over Natty's Original can help give silver a slightly wetter look.

    Or, for a mega quick and easy option, Optimum Car Wax looks great on silver.

    Following good reviews on DW I've been using Finish Kare 1000P as a sealant / wax in place of good old Colly 476.

    Tin is huge, great value, works a charm on wheels as well.
